NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION
WASHINGTON, D. C. 20555
MAR 22 1979
All Power Reactor Licensees
This letter is being sent to all licensees or applicants authorized to
operate of construct a nuclear power reactor.
In May 1978, the NRR staff held a meeting with the nuclear power reactor
industry to discuss the implementation of the physical security requirements
and other topics of interest to licensees in this area. Since the May 1978
meeting, additional requirements as well as Commission decisions regarding
the implementation of the nuclear power reactor physical security program
and other proposed rules and regulations have been issued.
To maintain a forum for the continuation of dialogue between the staff and
industry in order to provide a more uniform understanding of the
requirements of 10 CFR Part 73, the U. S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission,
Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation, has scheduled a meeting on June 11-12,
1979 at the Hilton Inn, 1901 University Boulevard, N.E., Albuquerque, New
Mexico. This meeting was scheduled following discussions with utilities and
industry groups who indicated that a general meeting should be held
following the guard training workshops which will be concluded in early May.
Individuals attending the meeting will be responsible for making their own
travel and lodging accommodations for the meeting. To assist the attendees
in lodging accommodations, the Hilton Inn will hold a block of rooms for
meeting attendees only until May 28, 1979. Experience has shown that
attendees may not be able to obtain accommodations at the Hilton Inn after
this cut-off date. Rates for single rooms range from $30 to $39, and from
$38 to $47 for doubles.
Pre-Registration will be held in the Garden Room of the Hilton Inn on
Sunday, June 10, 1979 from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.,. Registration will also be
